Take a Consistently Elevated Approach to Patient Care in Med-Surg

Med-surg is unique. With a wide range of patient acuities and high patient-to-nurse ratios, its challenges are unique, too. Are all your beds helping you address them?

You chose the Hillrom Centrella Smart+ Bed to act as an extension of your care team — helping you face your challenges and treat your patients with confidence. Now let us help you expand that value to every patient and clinician in your unit. Read on to explore the benefits of standardizing your med-surg unit on Centrella beds — so you can elevate care for every patient, every time.

Connection is Essential. Cables? Not Anymore.

Are unplugged, broken or missing nurse call cables creating a barrier between your patients and care teams? Your Centrella Smart+ Beds now connect to the Hillrom ReadyConnect System — a reliable, wireless connection between your Centrella Smart+ Beds and nurse call system. This simple-to-use device helps keep patients safe and satisfied by sending nurse calls, room controls, bed alerts and other bed-generated data to the nurse call system — no cables required.

  • Identify trends and challenges
  • Simplify reporting for leadership and/or quality metrics
  • Proactively support patient and clinician needs
